Atleast Two Are Staying

Atleast Two Are Staying


The 35-year-old shot stopper, who joined in January from Charlton, joins midfielder Sean Davis in committing his future to Pompey. So far we have a goally and a midfielder. That leaves a defender and an attacker. (Mind you we didn't have one of those this year!)

Deano said, 'As long as I'm playing first team football I am happy and will stay here. It doesn't matter what division we are in. I've now made 651 appearances and none of them have any brackets round them so I've not been a sub twiddling my thumbs and I don't want that to happen either,' he told The News.

'I turned down moves in my younger days when I could have gone to a bigger club and been a second or third choice keeper - I didn't want that. In the end I chose to go to Bury and make a contribution because there's no better feeling and satisfaction than to play in someone's first team.

'I'm a low-maintenance player. I don't need a kick up the backside or an arm round my shoulder - just give me the shirt. I take tremendous satisfaction in the fact I have played 651 first team games. I want to play more and I want that to be with Portsmouth,'

Dean Kiely went on to talk about the relegation 'sc**p.'

'Some people look at words such as battling and sc**pping as dirty, but I went through football in the lower leagues and it's the one ingredient that remains constant whatever division you are in and whoever you play for.

'You have to have a hard-working nature, be industrious and put a shift in.'

I wonder how many more of the Pompey squad feel the same way. Our record of ins and outs is probably second to none over the last few seasons. I suspect that situation is not about to change as we are about to play our football in our old established league

Whoever will get to clean the toilets can get some experience by going to a few Ryman League games. Some of our current players could well stay longer, if we do the same by remaining in this division....and then, only then will the toilet blocks upgrade.

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 29th June.

Done Deal - Walsall compensated for Lalkovic

Milan Lalkovic has become Pompey's sixth signing of the summer. A compensation agreement with Walsall was agreed that has seen the former Chelsea winger join the Blues.

Solving that goalie quandary

I'm not sure our problem with finding a 'regular' no.1 last season was behind our failure to gain promotion from league two was it? Clearly it didn't help mind.

Pompey's attacking intent

Something Pompey (attacking intent) will look to show next season to get out of league two once and for all. Smith came in from Swindon last week but Cookie wants another striker.
